Orange County Commissioners approved $3 Million in funding for the University of Central Florida’s downtown Orlando campus.

The university wants to build a campus for 13,000 students at the city’s Creative Village site in Parramore.

The $3 Million in county funds is contingent on other successful fundraising to build the campus- including legislative appropriations next session.

Governor Rick Scott vetoed state funding for the campus last legislative session.
